8:26 pm
were to become married and make a family out of it. my kids were so excited they ran to try to retrieve the contract. no, i want to keep it forever. my daughter was len at the time. we have tear it up or you have to go to jail. that was an indication they were on board. >> i felt good they wanted tear it up, too. thank god. >> what is the hardest part of blending a family. you are a reall-life brady bunch. >> there is no alice and no trip to hawaii. no. it is been seemless. bee took our time and involved the kids in the process and we were not real afrectionate, but were good friends as a unit. sevenpeople were falling in love and not just two. we paid close attention to the
8:27 pm
kid and the blending part was easy. there are two things that helped us. our spouses are present tense. matt and kathy are a part of the family. it is nine people are a part and two of them called home. our faith provided a foundation for us and not only the incredible valleys and sad parts of life but the joyful dancing parts of life are easier to understand for our kids because of their faith. >> and it is a great story. it is called a color of rain and i want to say thanks for michael and gina. it is not just a sad story. but a story of triumph and how family and faith can take the most horrible situation that you can imagine and make them okay. what a great story. the color of rain. thank you for being with us.
